Why choose a Specialist:

What is a Board Certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist?​

A board certified veterinary ophthalmologist is someone who has completed an undergraduate bachelor’s degree, 4 years of veterinary medical school, 1-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery, and finally a 3-year residency program in ophthalmology. Once the residency program has been completed the individual then undergoes the process of becoming board certified which consists of presenting a credentials package to the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmology Exam Committee. Once the credentials package has been accepted the applicant is then able to sit for the examination; which is a four-day process that consists of written, practical and surgical portions. Once the veterinarian has successfully completed all portions of the examination they are recognized as a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists and are considered to be board certified.

Why a Veterinary Ophthalmologist? When does your pet need a specialist?

The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists promotes excellence in veterinary ophthalmology through advanced training, certification, research and education.
